But from the sounds of it, you may have the incorrect replacement gasket. Whats the Fel-Pro part# of the gasket you have?
Yes, it is the black valve cover. The Fel-pro part# is VS50454R, which is the current replacement for the 96 DOHC per every site I've looked at.

What's strange is the hard plastic for the old gasket that is currently on the valve cover. This was a big surprise since I knew the Fel-pro VS50454R is rubber. I was expecting something very similar...
